Steps I used to get MySQL 5.5 working on Ubuntu 11.04 AMD64 (behind Aptitude’s back sadly since it’s still not packaged up due to copyright statuses..):

  • Download the following from here.

    • mysql-common_5.5.13-2_all.deb
    • libmysqlclient18_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • libmysqlclient-dev_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • mysql-client-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • libmysqld-dev_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • libmysqld-pic_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • mysql-server-core-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    • mysql-server-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
  • Run the following to remove older versions of MySQL client/server:

    sudo aptitude remove mysql-client mysql-client-5.1 mysql-client-core-5.1 mysql-common mysql-server mysql-server-5.1 mysql-server-core-5.1
  • From the directory you downloaded the files above to:

    sudo aptitude install libmysqld-dev
    sudo dpkg -i mysql-common_5.5.13-2_all.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libmysqlclient18_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo aptitude install zlib1g-dev
    sudo dpkg -i libmysqlclient-dev_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo aptitude install libdbi-perl libdbd-mysql-perl
    sudo dpkg -i mysql-client-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libmysqld-dev_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i libmysqld-pic_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i mysql-server-core-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb
    sudo dpkg -i mysql-server-5.5_5.5.13-2_amd64.deb

Took me awhile of messing around to get the sequence right, hope this helps!
